The Silence That Follows – Pre-order

‘The Silence That Follows’ LP/CD/DL

Greetings! I’m happy to announce that my new album, ‘The Silence That Follows’ is coming out on Drone Rock Records

“The next release on Drone Rock Records sees the welcome return of Stereocilia, AKA Bristol based composer and drones/loops extraordinaire John Scott. His debut vinyl album, ‘Hive Mind’, released on DRR back in October 2017, was a personal favourite and captured a core essence of the kind of music I sought out to represent when I started the label. ‘The Silence That Follows’ is a phenomenal and truly atmospheric follow up which explores new territories and themes but could still essentially be viewed as a companion piece to ‘Hive Mind’. This is an album to be lost in as it transports you away in a droney bliss.”

“…it brings remeniscence of something familiar yet slightly out of grasp, like warped super 8 clips of good times past. Close your eyes and let the soothing sounds guide you. Stereocilias’ canvas is your universe, the painting is your soul.”

Sly Vinyl

“a dense, hybrid ambient mess of nothingness which pulls you into its void and encompasses your very being…. a true cathartic experience which turns into a beautiful cinematic sound-scape.”

Echoes And Dust

Wormhole out now!

My new album, Wormhole is now available to purchase/download via Bandcamp

“Whilst on my 3rd European tour in April 2017, I spent 3 days at WORM Studio, Rotterdam, with their large collection of vintage synthesizers and drum machines. I had two plans for the studio time, the first was to record the synth parts to my then upcoming album, ‘Hive Mind’ (Drone Rock Records, 2017) the second, was to spend as much time improvising and exploring these machines, most of which I would probably never get another chance to play on.

I came away with close to 3 hours worth of material from my time at WORM. The tracks presented here are all improvised, with no overdubs. The last track on ‘Wormhole’ was recorded on my final evening in the studio. I set up 9 synths, a drum machine and my guitar and did a live Facebook video stream. The video is now available to view here youtu.be/wqUgnEgjU-E ”

The cd version is a limited 4 panel gatefold CD, with an 8 page booklet.
